Don't even THINK about flashing your phone until you have done more reading and understand things a bit more, otherwise its a disaster waiting to happen.

As for your question, the other gig of stuff is mostly rubbish/bloatware that a lot of people don't want on their phone.

1.3 GB? Are you kidding me?

After installed or decompressed, it's over 2 GB!

And AOSP/CM11 only have size about 400 MB or so.

i will tell you why?
because the Stock Firmware have all TouchWiz Features like : air gesture, smart stay, s beam, air view, multi-window, reading mode, smart pause, elc..

there is a lot of things in the Samsung TouchWiz
but when you look into CM its a Raw android, you just have every thing you need.

On the raw 160 M you must add the Gapps (google applications ) that are some 230 M. this lead to 400 Meg that is the minimum that can be reached by removing all the real Samsung bloat ware or so called!
